Hunter Valley Wedding Photographer

Hi, we are Kim & Adam award-winning photographers behind Cavanagh Photography! Kim runs the business side and Adam is the primary wedding photographer.

Cavanagh Photography was founded in 2008 through Adam’s passion for photography, art and storytelling. We are both originally from NSW, and that is where Cavanagh Photography started. Primarily shooting in the city. After shooting around two-hundred city weddings, we moved up to the northern end of the Coast. It was a wonderful move as being towards Newcastle and the Hunter Valley it moved us closer to places we love shooting. Adam has a real passion for outdoor, country weddings so the Hunter Valley fast became one of his favourite wedding destinations.

Adam happily shoots weddings almost everywhere and anywhere. But the Hunter Valley and Newcastle regions we consider our local area and we absolutely love it. We have worked in most of the wedding venues in the region and know the area really well.

We have a real love for country & coastal weddings, be it in a vineyard, a mountain top, a secluded beach, a farm, a private property or just anywhere in nature really. Sweeping landscapes and an abundance of natural light are Adam’s happy place :)

We also really love small, intimate weddings and elopements. We had a relatively small wedding ourselves on Hamilton Island.

Adam is always keen to shoot in new places he has never been before. Getting very excited to explore new locations, find awesome spots for photos always making sure to check it out before the wedding.

Adam’s photographic style is candid and unobtrusive… so there is no posing or faking moments. This allows you to relax and just be yourselves and have an awesome time at your wedding!

Destination Wedding Photographer Australia

Australia & New Zealand has some of the most stunning landscapes in the world and Adam has been lucky enough to travel around Australia for destination weddings and elopements as well a few overseas.
